27 Year Old Inmate Mark Daniels Facing Charges for Assaulting the Aurora Movie Theater Shooter James Holmes
HMM, SHOULDN’T WE GIVE THIS INMATE PRISON PERKS, AND A PACK OF CIGARETTES INSTEAD?
27 year old Mark “Slim” Daniels is supposed to be charged with assault for an alleged attack on James Holmes, the Aurora move theater shooter. The incident occurred earlier this month at the Colorado State Penitentiary. The fellow state maximum security penitentiary prisoner Mark “Slim” Daniels threw himself at Holmes and took a few swings at the convicted mass killer earlier this month. Charged, really? Let’s just call it prisoners meeting out their own brand of justice. James Holmes is serving multiple life terms for carrying out the Aurora movie theater massacre that killed 12 and wounded 70. Sorry if this is wrong, but I would have no issue if this inmate had shived Holmes and killed him. The jury in James Holmes murder trial should have sentenced this SOB to death, not life in prison.
James Holmes, condemned to spend the rest of his life in a Colorado prison, was allegedly assaulted there by a fellow inmate, a state corrections spokeswoman said Saturday.
The incident occurred earlier this month at the Colorado State Penitentiary, which Holmes’ calls home given his multiple life terms for carrying out the Aurora movie theater massacre that killed 12 and wounded 70.
“It was not an attack, it was a very minor incident in passing in a hallway,” Adrienne Jacobson, a spokeswoman for the Colorado Department of Corrections, told CNN.
While the 27-year-old Holmes wasn’t injured, the incident was serious enough to warrant charges against the other inmate.
Jacobson told the Denver Post that inmate, 27-year-old Mark Daniels, will be charged with assault on Holmes and assault on a correctional officer.
The Colorado newspaper said that it first learned of the encounter in a letter received Friday, purportedly from Daniels, saying the incident occurred October 8. But corrections officials hadn’t seen the letter and couldn’t confirm that Daniels wrote it.
Hmm, maybe there is honor among thieves as earlier reported in this story.
